    Some of the people that came to the event sold cherished possessions (cars, boats, etc.) in order to pay for their trip--for some, their only time to see the choir live. It was a testimony to their love for the choir.

    There was standing room only--literally. We gave standing ovations after every number and the cheers went on for longer times than the songs themselves.

    It was one of those events where there wasn't a dry eye in the audience. Tears of joy ebbed forth during the performance and afterwards, tears of sadness were shed knowing that it was over and time for the choir to return home.

    On our drive home, rain started to fall as if heaven itself was sharing in the emotions of the evening.

    In my travels across the world the choir has been the one LDS item I've never had to defend. People everywhere love the choir. I remember being lost in Iceland and when the person who stopped to help us find our way learned we were from Utah began praising the choir. In Sweden at that time (1980's) the ministry of religious affairs would accept no LDS TV programming but the choir. Truly the choir is the most loved outreach of the Church.
